6790, 6850, or gtx 460 best overall?

I do realize that the 6850 is the best out of the batch and originally i was going to buy this : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161384

but there were some bad reviews about the fan and the temps. and all of that and it discouraged me a bit.

so i thought maybe i could buy a 6790 with really nice cooling such as: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150534

it is nice but then again it unfortunately is not a 6850 but im not sure if there is much a difference.

and also i ran across one of these : http://www.amazon.com/Galaxy-Technology-Mini-HDMI-Graphics-60XMH6HS3HMW/dp/B003VKGZSM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1329774462&sr=8-1

which is cheap and at lower resolutions has better performance then the 6790

also another 460 i had in mind is: http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-GeForce-miniHDMI-Graphics-01G-P3-1361-KR/dp/B006KZGH88/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1329774470&sr=8-1

my monitor res. is 1680 x 1050 and sometimes i use my 32' plasma which res. is 1024 x 768

    Slightly faster than the HD 6850 (original 256 bit version of the GTX 460 1GB). Great overclocker and better brand as well.
